Hymns for Contemporary Worship for 2 Violins and Piano
Catherine McMichael has arranged four contemporary worship favorites in this collection for two violins and piano. Ideal for a wide range of services, the arrangements feature both exciting and reflective styles that will delight all. The moderately difficult piano part provides support for violin parts written through fifth position.
1. Soon and Very Soon (Andraé Crouch)
2. How Beautiful (Twila Paris)
3. Shout to the North (Martin Smith)
4. Great Is the Lord (Michael W. Smith/Deborah D. Smith)
Retaining their ancient modal origins, these seven hymns are an ideal addition to any Advent service. The Violin 1 plays a simpler melodic role, while accompanying Violin 2 is more challenging. The piano part is moderately difficult. Grade 2.5.
Savior of the Nations, Come
Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming
Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
The Angel Gabriel
Come, Redeemer of the Earth
Of the Father's Love Begotten
Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates
This collection contains "salon" music of the 19th century,
arranged for violin ensemble performance and also edited for violin solo
with piano. These selections encourage expressive playing, and in a
group setting teach the unity of intonation, phrasing, and ensemble that
one hears in the violin section of a fine orchestra. Includes
a score, piano accompaniment and reproducible parts.
Hymns of Sacrifice and Triumph for 2 Violins and Piano
The hymns in this collection are fantastic choices for any Lenten or Easter service. Scored for two violins and piano, the melodic first part is more accessible, while the accompanying second part provides more of a challenge. Although optional, the piano part fills out each arrangement wonderfully, adding to the hymn's beauty.
